Assessments Series

These assessment tasks can be used by teachers to provide ongoing formative assessment integrated with mathematics instruction. The assessments reflect what all students need to know and be able to do in the given grade or course described in the state and national standards.

The tasks are focused on assessing both how well students understand the mathematics and how well they can carry out the procedures necessary to solve the task. Thus, the tasks require more of students than simply the “right” answer, instead revealing also how students are thinking about a mathematical situation.
